HINDU EARTH ETHICS & CLIMATE ACTION
Yale University, February 9th, 2019 ● 10AM - 4.30PM
The time for climate action
During this time of climate crisis, community-led environmental activism is a necessary and powerful force, especially activism rooted in faith traditions. Hindu environmental ethics and activism is being shaped by young people and community leaders as much as it is by the academy. Today, Hindu-Americans from all walks of life are making meaning, reclaiming identities, and shaping powerful activism, applying dharma to the critical issues facing us all.
Join us on February 9th, 2019 at Yale University for an intercollegiate conference exploring the intersection between Hinduism and ecology. Hindu Earth Ethics and Climate Action will feature students, activists, and scholars sharing how Hindu traditions shape their environmental thought, followed by a conversation on the practice of Hindu environmental activism here in North America.
The conference is free to attend and open to students, scholars and practitioners. A lunch is provided for all participants.
